2022 Dutch Grand Prix: Bagnaia is ahead of Espargaro and Quartararo, relive free practice 2

The eleventh round of the championship continued this afternoon with free practice 2, which closed the first day of the Dutch Grand Prix. Relive the second session of the weekend below.

JoahnThis morning, free practice 1 of the Dutch Grand Prix took place in pouring rain, which did not prevent Jack Miller from winning ahead of Joan Mir and Pol Espargaro. And according to the weather forecast, it should still be there in free practice 2 and this, for the greatest pleasure of the Australian driver who is never as comfortable as on a wet track. But while during free practice 1, many pilots have bet on caution to avoid falling from the first sessionthey will inevitably be forced to take more risks in free practice 2, whose stakes will be even a little higher. And whilea new rainy episode is expected Sunday at 2 p.m.at the exact moment when the start of the race will be given, drivers must imperatively take advantage of free practice to get used to driving on a wet track and be prepared for the Dutch Grand Prix, while avoiding compromising their weekend with a bad fall. Not easy…
